Here's the one that started it all! The Kestrel 1000 Pocket Wind Meter was developed in 1995 as a reliable wind meter. Every Kestrel Meter features a large, 1" impeller mounted on a sapphire jewel bearing, which means it starts rotating with the slightest puff of air - 0.3 mph to be exact!
This unique impeller is user-replaceable, which means it can easily be replaced if it is damaged or worn. If your application demands regular calibration, simply pop in a new impeller and the Kestrel Wind Meter is restored to like-new factory calibration standards.
